How do you clean burned stuff off of an aluminum pan?
By handicapped91 from Peabody, MA
If the pan does not have plastic or wooden handles, or if you can remove the plastic/wood handles, you can put aluminum pans in a self-cleaning oven. It's easy and does an amazing job of cleaning them. I cleaned some WearEver pans that way and they came out like new. (06/29/2009)
The tip about the self-cleaning oven would not be advisable for any pan with non-stick finish, also Wearever pots are quite thick and strong and perhaps can stand the high heat of such treatment
but thinner metal might be damaged this way.
I've read tips that say adding enough liquid laundry softener to cover burns on bottom of pan and letting pan soak several hours makes it easier to clean it. I also read you can use 1 (or maybe 2) softener sheets plus enough plain water to cover the affected area instead of the liquid softener. Good luck. God Bless. (06/30/2009)
